Griaß God! That was hello in Bavarian! Welcome to your cycling holiday on Lake Chiemsee. Did you know that large expanses of Upper Bavaria are covered by water? And that Lake Chiemsee is Germany's third biggest lake? Chiemgau is best explored by bike! The well-signposted cycle paths turn cycling into pure enjoyment. Along the route there are many places to stop and taste a Bavarian pint of beer and enjoy the glittering, snow-peaked Alpine panorama. On your cycling holiday at Lake Chiemsee, discover the lovely little villages in the hinterland, away from the tourists - but also the region's highlights: islands with impressive monasteries and Ludwig II's influence on the area make Upper Bavaria an unforgettable experience! As this cycling holiday is one of our star tours, the starting point for all of these adventures is always the same. So there won't be any annoying packing of suitcases to contend with.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Pelham am See

Once you have arrived at the hotel, you are invited to welcome meeting to provide you with some information. If you have booked rental bikes, they will be ready for you at the hotel. Pelham is in the countryside and not right on Lake Chiemsee. Enjoy Pelham's peace and quiet, or go on a small trip to Prien - the biggest town on Lake Chiemsee. Prien is a historic market community. Today you will love it for its pretty lakeside promenade and restaurants.

Day 2: Trip to Eggstätter Lake District, approx. 40 km / 60 km

Your first cycle on this cycling holiday on Lake Chiemsee takes you through Bavaria's oldest nature reserve. Eggstätter Lake District is made up of a total of 17 lakes. This relaxed tour shows you nature's beauty in its entirety! You pedal past romantic, flower-garlanded farmhouses to reach the tranquil village of Höslwang. Enjoy the wonderful views of the Alpine panorama. Car lovers will love the Museum of German Automotive History in Amerang. A trip to Amerang extends the route by about 20 km. 

Day 3: Trip to Lake Chiemsee, approx. 65 km

Today you pedal round the Bavarian Sea. You start in Pelham and head for Lake Chiemsee. Through woods and small cosy little villages, with a direct view of the glittering lake, you pedal through the wonderful countryside of Upper Bavaria. On the cycle path, you'll pass viewing points that give you unforgettable views of Lake Chiemsee's islands and the Alps. It's worth stopping! Make sure that you get in some swimming on your cycling holiday on Lake Chiemsee. You can dive in at any of the many lidos. And for culture-vultures, you have to visit the Roman museum in Seebruck. The museum tells you the Celtic/Roman history of Chiemgau.

Day 4: Trip to Herreninsel and Fraueninsel, approx. 20 km + boat trip

You cycle a short while to the jetty to Prien. From here, a boat takes you to Herreinsel - the largest island of Lake Chiemsee: this is where the fairy-tale king, Ludwig II, had a replica of Versailles built. Some five kilograms of gold leaf were used in the castle. The bedroom is one of the most sumptuous rooms of the 19th century. When you've finished walking round Herreninsel, you naturally have to go to Fraueninsel: the island and fishing village and the ancient monastery exude a wonderful peace and calm. Immerse yourself in this long lost time. And don't forget to enjoy the local dishes served here. 

Day 5: Trip to Lake Simsee and Rosenheim, approx. 40 km + train trip

Lake Simsee will inspire you with its almost entirely unspoiled reedbanks. Through a nature reserve, you cycle to the River Inn, a well-known tributary to the Danube, and follow the river to Rosenheim. This typically Bavarian town can be seen from afar- identified by its onion domes. Southern flair and Alpine charm are the characteristics of this town. Get off your bike for a change, and explore the pretty old quarter of Rosenheim by foot. Even though Rosenheim is not on the lake, a visit to this town on your cycling holiday on Lake Chiemsee is a must. The train (not included) takes you back to Pelham.

Day 6: Trip to Seeon monastery, approx. 45 km

You cycle through green countryside and fairy-tale forests to Seeon. In Seeon, the monastery of the same name awaits you. The former Imperial Monastery is situated on an island - and right in the middle of a nature reserve. The monastery was built in 994! It has changed its "service" several times: the high nobility and ducal families used it to reside in; it has also been used as a spa resort. The walk over the bridge, which connects the island with the mainland, takes you back into a different time. Enjoy the peaceful countryside with a glass of the local wine. On your way back you will be able to spy the dark blue water of Lake Chiemsee. Did you see the small vineyards in the slopes? You now return to your hotel, passing through traditional Bavarian villages

Day 7: Individual departure

After breakfast, your cycling holiday on Lake Chiemsee comes to an end.
